Ugly brown box of pure refreshment

Our home teacher (for anyone reading this who's unfamiliar with Mormon terminology, he's a guy from church who visits us on a monthly basis and shares an uplifting, gospel-related message as well as making sure everything is okay with us) brought us a present yesterday. Nothing new or fancy, just something he's had sitting in his garage for several years now. It's brown and ugly and we worship it like a gift from God. Which it is. says it's only 95 degrees outside right now, but we came home from the grocery store an hour ago and I swear it's already over 100. Humidity, ugh. But in our house...ahhhhhhh. A balmy 79 degrees. How did we ever survive three summers without one of these babies?


  1. Man we don't even get visits from our home teacher, much less a box to kneel before and worship daily! I have always said that air conditioning is the mark of civilization!

  2. I still don't know how people survive with just a swamp cooler here. I'll take the dry air over humidity anyday! (Having lived with that for 18 years of my life!)

  3. Air conditioning is wonderful. I could not survive in North Carolina without it.

  4. 95 degrees? Pshaw!! That's not hot!! Come down here for a visit. I'll show you freakin' hot. (And don't start in on the "Oh, but it's a dry heat business. I lived in the deep south, so I know all about humidity. When it's hot, it's hot. Doesn't matter if it's a dry heat or not!!).

    K, Done ranting now. :) Congrats on the nice, cool air inside the house! Makes a world of difference, huh? What a great home teacher you have! Woot!

  5. Hooray for pure refreshment! I remember those days in Oregon. Luckily they don't last too long!
